Jeopardy! -- CBS, Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.
America's Head Nerd will be crowned Tuesday on Jeopardy! during the final round of the annual Tournament of Champions. Since all the contestants qualified by winning at least three games during their initial runs, host Alex Trebek is clearly so over their boring contestant stories at this point. You can tell he just wants to get back to the game, where he can ask questions about operatic arias that only people on Jeopardy! recognize. When will they have a Brady Bunch category that I can dominate?
Law and Order: SVU -- NBC, Wednesday, 9 p.m.
Didn't realize they were still churning out new SVU episodes after all these years, but this one sounds like a doozy. Tell me if you've heard this story before: A hot, young pop starlet with puffy hair gets physically abused by her short, hip-hop artist boyfriend, whom the starlet still loves and who, after a crazy media scandal, ends up dead.

Mark and Donnie Wahlberg grew up in Dorchester and got into a lot of trouble as Boston tough guys before becoming famous. It's understandable if you didn't know that -- they never talk about it.
Celebrity Apprentice -- NBC, Sunday, 9 p.m.
Speaking of less-famous celebrity brothers, Stephen Baldwin is one of 14 "All-Stars" to appear on the new season of Celebrity Apprentice. As roaster Jeff Ross said about Jon Lovitz on the Charlie Sheen roast, it's good to see Baldwin taking a break from taking a break. Other former "celebrity" Apprentices like Bret Michaels, Lil Jon, Dennis Rodman and Gary Busey will compete in various entrepreneurial challenges for a charitable prize and five seconds of fame that they haven't had in decades.
